We emphasize matching the right dog with the right family so that all involved will have many happy years together. Here is the breakdown of our application process:
- Download and complete our adoption application (or fill it out online) and email back to email@example.com
- Veterinary reference & personal references
- Home visit
- Meet and greet
- Complete the Adoption Contract and pay the adoption fee
- Bring your new pooch home!
The adoption process can take just a couple of weeks to upwards of a month. For dogs that have received a number of applications, it can take a little time for our adoption coordinators to sort through them all. Remember, we are volunteer-run so all of this work is being done after the workday and on the weekends. We hope that you will be patient with us while we help you to find your perfect match!
You may not be the only one interested in adopting a particular dog. In these cases, we go by who applied first while also doing our best to match dogs with homes that will be a great fit.
If you don’t get your first choice, don’t worry! We have plenty of amazing dogs in need of loving homes and we save more every week. Take your time, your new pal is out there!
